  • Great Location and Clean Conditions

    "Just returned for a second time at this condo. It's been about 7 years and what a difference. The grounds and pool area have grown in to provide a lush tropical setting once you leave the door. The condo has loads of upgrades with an up to date kitchen and washer & drier. Each room has a private balcony with a bathroom. The location and style allows you to feel the Costa Rican culture, it's located on a quiet dirt road away from the more heavily traveled tourist areas. The location is 5mins walk to the beach and town. Tamarindo remains a down to earth Costa Rican town, but we did find a few new restaurants that were adding a touch of global panache to the local scene. We hit local spots for awesome fried red snapper served Tico style with head & tail, and found a new Argentine location serving home made noodles. This is a great location for anyone that wants the beach town lifestyle of Costa Rica, highly suggest renting this modern up to date condo in a super spot."

  • perfect paradise

    "This vacation rental was a perfect fit for our group. We hosted a yoga retreat at this Villa. The layout is great. It gave everyone the option to have a private room and bathroom and each room came with 2 queen beds, with A/C. There was a large covered outdoor common area for dining and hanging out. The pool was nice. There was also a great outdoor space for us to do yoga and a quant deck overlooking the ocean for mediation. Marcela, the housekeeper, cooked 2 meals a day for our entire group of 13 people. She cooked Costa Rican meals and provided vegetarian and vegan options. The house is merely footsteps from the ocean. We could hear the waves crashing at night while sleeping, it was beautiful. Monkeys were found playing in the trees outside the house a couple time. This house has a local, rustic feel. It's perfectly located in walking or biking distance to Tamarindo and Playa Grande. I would without a doubt offer another retreat here. The property was a great size for large groups. Nova was very helpful in making sure we had everything, from board rentals to massages and airport transportation."

  • Loved it!

    "We just returned from a 10 day stay at Casa Boaz. This property is a quiet, shady oasis just minutes from bustling Tamarindo. Dee and Andy were great hosts and were very helpful with recommendations and making reservations. Things we liked: visiting with other guests while cooling off in the pool, the quick walk to the beach, and lots of great restaurants within easy walking distance. Thanks Dee and Andy for helping to make our first trip to Costa Rica a memorable one."

  • Hidden Gem in Paradise

    "I am a seasoned traveler, having stayed at many resorts, hotels, private rentals, etc. all over the world for both business and pleasure. We traveled to Barefoot Villa on October 27th, with my wife, daughter and her two university girlfriends for a period of 1 week. We found BV to be everything it was described as, and more. It is set on a dead end road surrounded by lush green trees and flora native to the region, tranquil and quiet, conveniently located close to town and spectacular Guiones Beach. We were treated to the marvelous cooking of Nina; 3 healthy locally inspired meals a day, with fresh meats we purchased at the pescaderia (fish market), and local general market nearby. Everything else was provided prior to our arrival for off the shelf value plus a 20% service fee. Well worth the price and reasonable daily rate (we saved a small fortune by avoiding the restaurant option). We also procured the cleaning services of Laura 3 times during the week (one was included with the rental), which again was well worth the modest rate. Both ladies were well tipped for their awesome efforts. The house itself was spectacular; elegant and practical, with abundant space for the five of us. Angie has taken great care of ensuring all instructions, tips, local contacts, and everyday living details are carefully documented and accessible. We felt at home right away, and comfortably secure with the comprehensive yet easy to use security system. Our method of transportation was private shuttle from and to Liberia Airport, and 2 ATVs rented from David at Harbor Reef Hotel for local daily outings. This provided us with amazing opportunities to get to know the local area and beyond, without having to necessarily stay on the main roads. Angie has negotiated a discount with David's Guiones Beach Gear which made the ATV rentals very reasonable and far cheaper than a local car rental. Barefoot Villa also offers 3 bikes, 2 surfboards and a couple of boogie boards which were well used every day. All in all I would rate Barefoot Villa as one of our very top vacation rentals, in a spectacular and so far secluded region of amazing Costa Rica. We will be going back! I am happy to provide a personal reference, you can get my contact information from Angie."
